"Wrigley Field is falling down,
Wrigley Field is falling down,
My fair lady."
So, what do you think would be the appropriate course of action when (not if) Wrigley Field is torn and a new stadium for the Chicago Cubs is built?
One option would be to have the Cubs play in another venue, say, Soldier Field :eek: , for a period of time while the facility at 1060 W Addison is torn down and another is built in exactly the same place.
Another would be to build the new Cubs stadium somewhere else. But what to do with the land at 1060 W Addison? I think a museum of Chicago sports would fit in quite nicely in that spot. Otherwise, it could always be re-developed into housing and commercial interests.
If a new stadium is built somewhere else, downtown Chicago seems like a good enough idea. But I think somewhere along Lake Michigan would be even better; most likely it would have to be north of the Gold Coast.
So Cubs fans and/or Chicago Dopers, what do you think?
